Obtaining a French Immersion Certificate

 

Students who have successfully completed grade 9 in a French Immersion program are eligible to continue their French Immersion studies in high school.  Junior High francophone students who would normally attend Ecole Carrefour but wish to consider J.L. Ilsley should meet with their guidance counsellor to discuss which option best meets their needs.

 

 

A  French Immersion certificate from N.S Dept of Education will be awarded to students who pass 9 academic credits in subjects taught in French (including French language arts in Grade10, 11, and 12).  Students are required to take a minimum of two French Immersion courses per year.  

 

French Immersion students are strongly advised to carry 5 French Immersion courses in Grade 10, 2 in grade 11 and 2 in grade 12.  Taking 5 French Immersion courses in grade 10 allows room in Grade 11 and 12 for students to take additional courses, particularly in math and science.

Please Note:

 

If a French immersion student is planning to follow the math/science route to university, careful planning over the three high school years is advised due to the large number of math/science courses required. The credit selections below show what a typical student in this situation might choose. (Students in this situation may wish to take PAL/CLM in their grade 10 year).
